The commonest reasons for not conceiving are if you do not ovulate, if your tubes are blocked or if your partner's sperm count is low. You will need tests to check these. The treatments are different depending on what the problem is.

Zanele,

You are not too old and age should not play a role at this change. Find a gynae specializing in fertility treatments in a area near you. The doc will first ask a lot of questions about your health and history. He/she will also do a couple of blood tests to determine if you have a hormonal imbalance and if you ovulate. If no problems show up the next step will be a post coital test to see if your cervical environment is hostile to sperm or not. Your partner will also be asked to have a sperm sample analysed. If no problem is found at this point, the doc might recommend further investigations such as a laparoscopy where they insert a tiny camera in your abdomen and look to see if you have blocked tubes or endometrioses or other physical obstructions.

It is a long hard road, but as many women on this forum will agree it makes all the difference to be able to put a name and reason to your infertility and then get specific treatment for it. All the best!
